Every week, MobileSyrup outlines some of the most notable movies and TV shows that recently hit Canadian streaming platforms.

Our ‘Streaming in Canada’ column typically focuses on new content from Amazon Prime Video, Crave and Netflix, but other services like Apple TV+ and Disney+ will be mentioned when relevant. Premium video-on-demand (PVOD) platforms are also fair game as movies continue to come to digital early.

Finally, we’ll highlight shows or movies that are made by Canadian companies, involve notable Canadian cast or crew and/or are filmed in Canada.

Runtime: Five episodes (41 to 57 minutes each)

456 players take part in challenges inspired by Netflix’s popular Squid Game series for a chance to win a $4.56 million prize.

It should be noted, however, that the show was reportedly produced under terrible working conditions, with some contestants even threatening Netflix and the producers with a lawsuit over allegedly suffering hypothermia and nerve damage during filming.

Of course, it’s also just tone-deaf in the first place to capitalize on the success of a drama about economic class struggles by turning it into a reality competition series in which hundreds of people desperately try to win money.

If you still want, you can stream Squid Game: The Challenge here.

A Netflix ‘Standard with Ads’ subscription costs $5.99/month, a ‘Standard’ subscription (HD-supported) costs $16.49/month, and a ‘Premium’ membership is priced at $20.99/month (4K-supported).

The full list of movies hitting Netflix Canada this month can be found here.


Paramount+

Nothing to note here in terms of new content, but it’s worth mentioning the 50 percent off Black Friday promo that runs until November 27th.
